Bass

The Benchmark for Bass Guitarists

As the glue that holds the band together, Rockschool understands that no band can groove without a bass player who is fully in control of melody and rhythm. As you progress through your grades, you will expand your technical proficiency, develop a solid comprehension of music theory, and ultimately understand the bass’ unique role in the world of popular music.
